Meet Him Personally
If you want the emcee to be great, meet him personally to get an idea about how he would perform. Just by meeting him and observing how he talks, what he does to keep the audience engaged, if he dances or cracks superb jokes, you can know whether he is good or bad. So, rather than talking to him on phone or hiring him directly, choose to meet him personally.
Ask about Rates
It’s better to ask about the rates before hiring an emcee because some emcees ask for higher rates in the wedding season or if they would have to work extra. If you have set a budget for your wedding entertainment and are going to include other entertainments too, it’s better to know about the rate of each of them so as to adjust the rates, negotiate, etc.
